General Information.

Since every part of the guitar has a determent and precise function, the following is a brief description of my selection of the most important woods, which together with the right knowledge and fine craftsmanship, needless to say, is a very important part of any hand made guitar of high quality.

 

Top: Since the top is an extremely important part of the guitar´s sound, I only use very light, responsive, straight grained and quarter sawn Spruce or Cedar of the highest quality. The material for internal bars and enforcement on the inside of the top are likewise very carefully selected after an extensive series of quality checks and considerations.

 

Back & sides: For back and sides, I use a wide range of different woods, but common to them all is that they are straight grained and quarter sawn, since material cut this way is much more stable and therefore the risk of unwanted accidents caused by dryness is considerably reduced.

Most of the guitars that I make are made of dark brown Indian Rosewood, but I also use other materials such as flamed Maple, Cocobolo, Cypress, among others.

 

Neck: For the neck of the guitar I use quarter-sawn Honduras Cedar, a very stable material, which is very important, especially for the stability of the fretted fingerboard and the action of the strings.

 

Fingerboard: The fingerboard is made of very dark, quarter-sawn ebony. Most guitars that I make have a scale length of 650 mm. or 640 mm., although I also offer longer or shorter scales on order.
